Remote access: How ultrasound in telemedicine is changing education, training, and patient care

Advancements in telemedicine technology have greatly increased its use over the past few years, as more physicians and clinicians are finding new ways to utilize remote diagnosis and provide interactive care through telecommunications. One modality that has seen a large uptick in telemedicine usage is ultrasound, as experts are able to access ultrasound exams from all over the world at any time. Whether from the back of an ambulance, the site of a natural disaster, or simply as a means to teach medical residents, this new technology is revolutionizing ultrasound training, education, and patient care.
